Abstract
(EN)
A structural member is provided in an embodiment for a lift assembly. The structural member comprises an elongated member having a pair of spaced apart sidewalls with a pair of aligned apertures therein. A joint assembly comprises a support member is positioned between the sidewalls and aligned with the apertures. The support member has an outer dimension greater than the diameter of the apertures so the support member will not pass through the apertures. An interior sleeve is disposed adjacent to the support member and extends through the apertures. The interior sleeve has end portions projecting beyond the sidewalls. The end portions are cold worked, radially flared portions adjacent to the sidewalls. The radially flared portions have an outer diameter greater than the diameter of the apertures. A portion of the sidewalls around the apertures are fixedly captured between the radially flared portion of the interior sleeve and the support member.

La présente invention concerne un élément structurel disponible dans un mode de réalisation pour un ensemble de levage. L'élément structurel comprend un élément allongé ayant une paire de parois latérales séparées avec une paire d'ouvertures alignées à l'intérieur. Un ensemble de joint comprend un élément de support positionné entre les parois latérales et aligné avec les ouvertures. L'élément de support a une dimension extérieure supérieure au diamètre des ouvertures de façon à ce que l'élément de support ne traverse pas les ouvertures. Un manchon intérieur est disposé à côté de l'élément de support et s'étend à travers les ouvertures. Le manchon intérieur a des parties terminales saillant au-delà des parois latérales. Les parties terminales sont travaillées à froid et évasées dans le plan radial à côté des parois latérales. Les parties évasées dans le plan radial ont un diamètre extérieur supérieur au diamètre des ouvertures. Une partie des parois latérales entourant les ouvertures est capturée fixement entre la partie évasée dans le plan radial du manchon intérieur et l'élément de support.
